“In this day and age man, in essence, is upset precisely by the consciousness of his basic limitlessness. And perhaps this contributes to his not knowing who he is, because finding himself, in principle, capable of doing anything imaginable, he then does not know what he actually is.” (José Ortega y Gasset, Technology and Human Existence). “We are, without a doubt, ladies and gentlemen, children of the imaginary […] universal history is the attempt to tame the imagination, little by little, in various forms. […] Technology wants to create for us a new world, because the true world does not fit us, because it has made us sick. This new world of technology is consequently a giant orthopaedic apparatus.” (José Ortega y Gasset, “The Myth of Humanity outside Technology”).
